July 8: Stepping Stone Workshop
Add a touch of color, personality, and peace to your gardens and healing spaces. In this hands-on workshop, MN GreenCorps Member, Sara Dennison will guide us in making garden stepping stones that can be taken home with you! If you have bits of glass, beads, or small stones you would like to use in your piece, please bring them with you! Broken jewelry? Found objects? Old coins? Old keys? Pleasant mantras? These things work too! We will have some adornments available for you to use.

Sustainable Tuesdays are a partnership between Bemidji State’s Sustainability Office, the Indigenous Environmental Network, Minnesota GreenCorps and the Rail River Folk School. The Sustainable Tuesdays presentations aim to draw upon the strengths of the region’s diversity to create a sustainable Bemidji.
